    So did I miss something?

    I am now able to use Google Chrome on my Macbook Air and it pops up on my iPad with the Handoff feature as Safari. Sure enough, when I click on it on the iPad, it pulls up the same page that was on Chrome.

    Is this new?? I am impressed!

    Are you sure it is actually working? I have never seen that occur before.

    It started working for me. Wow. Very cool.

    Good spot.

    Nope, my handoff wasn't working properly so I logged out if iCloud and back into it on my Mac after the iOS9 update. Started working immediately after that.

    Same happens to me, only the other way around. When I view a page on Safari on my iPad a Chrome handoff icon pops up on my iMac as it's the default brower on there

    Awesome! Has this been around since iOS8 and I just missed it?

    Works both ways for me. If I pull up Google on phone, Safari Handoff is engaged on Mac.

    Even when I was running Yosemite and iOS 8, I never saw this happen.

    Mine has worked that way since Google updated Chrome earlier in the year. I just wish it could hand off to Chrome on iOS :(
